Looking for LOVE in all the Wrong Places…..

*****Another quick football footnote:Keith Love was by far the standout player for the Smith Golden Eagles this season, he was their best player, and their Quarterback. The Eagles did not win a game but Love was solid throughout. How did Love end up at Smith? He transferred in from Eastern Guilford.(EG has lost 3 starting QB’s in four years to transfer)***** This excerpt is from GREENSBOROSports.com, November, 2007.

from www.news-record.com:
A junior at Southern Guilford High School was arrested last Wednesday at the school after authorities found guns and drugs in a vehicle.

Keith Anthony Love, 17, of 107 W. Lakefield Drive, is charged with felony possession of stolen goods, misdemeanor possession of a handgun by a minor, two counts of felony possession of weapons on school property and three felony counts of drug possession, sell and deliver.

The case began after school officials looked into a reported drug deal in a bathroom at Southern Guilford on Wednesday. The weapons found in a vehicle included a .38-caliber revolver that had been stolen in Greensboro on March 27 and a Saiga assault rifle, .223 caliber, with a 30-round full magazine, according to the Guilford County Sheriff’s Office. The drugs included cocaine and marijuana.

Love is being held in the Greensboro jail under a $20,000 bond.

Is this the same kid that was playing football at Eastern Guilford, then left and started at QB for Smith this past season and then transferred to Southern Guilford and was playing basketball for the SG Storm back in January? Am I the only one that finds this to be a bit CRAZY?

Scott Loosemore at Eastern would know the truth and let’s hope he will check in. I am starting to find it hard to keep up with all these whacked-out cases……Is this CRAZY or not? This tells me something is wrong here and we are heading into a Major Danger Zone…

I must just be looking for trouble.

    Those sound like some serious weapons.

    I just spoke with a parent from Eastern Guilford and they said that this is the same Keith Love that played football at EG/Smith, and basketball for SG.

    They told me that they don’t know what went wrong with Keith Love. He seemed like a nice kid, no prior record, and that he had been in their home visiting a few weeks back, but he will not be coming to their home again any time soon….

    This type of behavior has a lot of people worried and we may to call in special investigator and local barrister Jan Pritchett.

    I have contact with several parents each day and will try and get more info on what’s going on. I have talked to five parents who have kids in the schools, already this morning.

    I am a student at Ben L. Smith High, I knew Kieth Love, and I know what went wrong with him. He was a sweet person, with a good heart, he fell into the wrong crowd and felt he had to keep up an image, this image eventually became his actual character. It’s sad to see how a young life can go so wrong, the Kieth Love I knew was a strong, charismatic, and joyful young, talented man, I don’t know this Keith anymore…
